Skin care for brides should not be an overlooked matter if you want flawless complexion, shiny locks of hair and fabulous glow when you’re walking down the aisle. Yes, you’ve made it through the heavenly phase of teary ‘yes’ on your engagement, but with all the wedding preparations’ stress, often times brides ignore the skin care routine before the final Wedding Hair and Makeup. Here are some easy tips to follow to create your own skincare regime before wedding day makeup:
- Stay Hydrated:
It’s very important to drink water and eat water-rich food like watermelon, grapefruit, broccoli and lettuce. Without adequate water intake, your skin may appear dull and even wrinkles and pores may seem prominent.
- Consult your dermatologist:
Don’t go hard on your skin by exfoliating scrubs. You should not use harsh exfoliants two weeks before your wedding day makeup, it may result in potential breakouts and rashes on your skin which can be hard to cover up with your final wedding makeup. Visit your dermatologist to get rid of that acne and rashes under medical guidance.
Moisturizing is essential for your skin to get a flawless glow. Prep your face with moisturizing lotions or non-oily SPF cream. Give extra attention to excessively dry areas like elbow, knee, hand.
- Choose right Toner:
To start your skin care routine right, you must know your skin type. But a carefully chosen Toner can be your answer to rebalance your skin even if it is oily or dry. Toner is used to cleansing skin and refine pores. It gives your complexion more even tone. If you have dry skin you should choose alcohol-free toners. If you have sensitive skin look out for ingredients like aloe vera to soothe skin and reduce inflammation.
- Get beauty rest:
Get the sleep and relax to achieve the best look for your big day. Getting the beauty rest is very important for your skin because stress releases cortisol, which can throw off the other hormones in your body which can cause breakouts on your face and even acne. So relax and get the much-needed sleep for your flawless skin.
- Bring Foundation that matches your skin:
It’s wise to bring your own foundation that you use on daily basis to compliment your natural skin color. You don’t want to like a mannequin for your big day. You can even ask Makeup artist beforehand for your desired foundation color to make sure you don’t have a porcelain look.
